So I already told you guys a friend of mines birthday is this weekend and she loves Bioshock. What better excuse to make something on a laser?! So I decided to take the bioshock logo and just put her name inside it instead.
Here’s the original:
Had to put her name in, and fix all the light rays behind it.
Time to burninate!
It has rivets around the edge, so why not actually make those something?
I’ll make those tiny little pillars which I can mount an engraved acrylic window over the top if she wants a super fancy coaster instead.
So many pegs, and one of the most useful tools in my arsenal - the poker thingy
It took a couple tries to get the kerf correct. Different for different materials. And these things were tough to get in. You want it to be tight, but sometimes it just doesn’t fit. That’s ok, just pull it out a little, dab some superglue and smash it back in. Good times.
Next is to make another copy of the design and reverse it for the acrylic engraving. (I forgot to reverse the holes and had to do it again. Who doesn’t make holes symmetrical?! - OCD)
And time for weeding (long intermission)
Ok we’re back
Looking good, maybe a little more
Everythings all cleaned up! Lets see how they look
